Why are we so excited about signing Oscar?



The answer for me is simple. Apart from the obvious talent he has, the reason we are so excited about signing him is the change in transfer policy that his purchase has shown. I am not talking about simply a refocus on younger players, I am talking about purchasing a player with an obvious skillset with the view of developing him into a new system. With Eden Hazard I believe this isn't so much the case as he is a high profile, established player with teams swarming to get him. His role in the team is clearly defined and was probably one of the reasons he knew he would come to us as he knew he could get game time. Marin as well was brought in to fill a void in our wings. With Oscar, however, RDM is obviously looking to develop his talent and position within the team. What this signals is a shift of emphasis towards nurturing players and very possibly the definition of the style of our play. Which can be transcribed across all levels of development, hence making it easier for academy prospects to transition into the team. What is particularly exciting for me is that, regardless of whether we actually do well this year and RDM stays on, there will be a system in place that will continue to nurture talent like Oscar as they are part of the grander scheme, the "new system" under which Roman is ushering in. This isn't simply a focus on buying young players, it is a change in the attitude of the club into which players we buy, the reasons for buying them and how we use them and develop them.
